When looking for a home loan it’s important to do your research and figure out what option will work the best for you when it comes to the interest rate, loan term, and total amount of interest paid.
We believe that getting a fixed rate mortgage is usually going to be the best choice for most of you, although in some rare instances an ARM might be a good option, if its known that you would be moving in a few years.
